HAUTLENCE HL2.2

LIMITED AND NUMBERED EDITION OF 28 PIECES

HAUTLENCE HL2.0

A MECHANICAL REVOLUTION

The HL2.0 collection represents the second generation of HAUTLENCE watches.

Faithful to the brand’s fundamental concept of offering a different way of reading time, this collection goes even further and establishes HAUTLENCE among the most prestigious contemporary watchmaking brands.

The HL2.0 models display half-trailing jumping hours, one of the special features of this second collection, retrograde minutes a signature of the brand and a power-reserve indicator.

The collection also includes an automatic movement for the first time.

Constructed around the retrograde minutes function, the jumping hours mechanism consists of a 12 link chain activated by a connecting rod/crank as in the HL2.o collection.

The retrograde minutes are indicated on a 180° sector of the dial.

An ingenious mechanism governs the movement of the assembly with a speed control that protects the components from any shocks arising from its operation.

The chain rotates the mobile bridge through 60° each hour, compensating for the effect of gravity.

To provide sufficient energy, the principal barrel, wound by the automatic system, winds a second barrel, which drives the display complication.

Developed and produced by the Neuchâtel brand’s own teams, this collection is the first to offer a Manufacture mechanical movement with automatic winding.

THREE PATENTS FOR AN EXCEPTIONAL TIMEPIECE

FIRST PATENT

The first patent concerns the half-trailing hours chain (as opposed to an instant system that is too fast to appreciate, or a dragging system that cannot be read correctly between the hours): every 60 minutes the chain advances in 3-4 seconds without jumps or loss of energy, making it possible to admire the beauty of the movement and its mechanisms in action.

SECOND PATENT

The second patent relates to the regulating organ integrated into the mobile bridge movement.

Its constantly changing position, driven by the display, compensates statistically for the effect of gravity, enhancing its precision.

THIRD PATENT

The third patent covers the operation of the movement's two barrels.

The principal barrel is wound by the automatic system and transmits the energy needed to wind a second barrel that is devoted exclusively to driving the complication.

It is kept fully wound by the main barrel to ensure that an optimal level of energy is available to change each hour.

This means the complex systems are powered independently without affecting the precision of the watch.
